Clairwood Racecourse


Click on picture to enlarge

It is hard to believe that the charming Clairwood Racecourse is built on land that was originally nothing but a swamp. A combination of foresight and careful planning saw the opening on Tuesday May 24, 1921. Known as the "Garden Course", Clairwood Racecourse is an oasis of fauna and flora, which, when combined with the excitement of horseracing, makes the ideal venue for an afternoon's entertainment. Clairwood Racecourse is situated approximately 10 km from the city centre and 4 km from the Durban International Airport on the Southern Freeway (M4). Access to Clairwood Racecourse from Durban, is via the Southern Freeway (M4) Mobeni/Jacobs (Exit 7) glide-off and right into Quality Street. Access from the South and to the Ascot parking enclosure is via the Southern Freeway (M4) Merewent (Exit 8) off-ramp. A train service is available to racegoers with stations within walking distance of the racecourse. The left-handed oval racetrack is 2500 metres in circumference, with one of the easiest turns in the country. The run-in to the winning post is 600 metres. There is also a 1 200 metre straight, meeting the bend at the 600 metre post.
